My mother has progressive m.S. And is always dealing with its symptoms, however, she periodically experiences severe episodes about once a year. During these exacerbations, she also has sneezing episodes, where she ends up sneezing multiple times every ten minutes or so. Is this just a coincidence, or could there be some immune reaction taking place?

Thanks for any information you might be able to offer.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sneezing repeatedly means some local inflammation and is common in people with progressive MS and treatment is mostly supportive and symptomatic.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
